You scored as Harry Potter. Your alter ego is one Harry James Potter. You can be a little reckless and hot-headded at times, but a more brave and courageous friend would be hard to find.

tron remake @ 09:55 pm

I think this'll be one of those geek movies that i secretly love, and feel pressured to
profess to hate. Even crappy movies like oceans 11 are professed as much better than
their superior (and excellent) remakes. If the producers and directors are in sync, the
planets are aligned, and it shows jude law in a tight fitting suit, it .. could .. work.

Anti-position paper @ 07:58 am

Was reading the edge's redux on the beliefs of scientists, and a lot of them made sure to chime in that they think their consciousness ends at death. I haven't honestly thought a lot about my religious beliefs since college, but i get irritated when scientists think they're being edgy saying that their person ends at death. I'm not sure why you have to make a belief out of ending at death or surviving it.

You fundamnetally have no idea. Nobody's ever come back from death. You *will* die, and you *can't know* what happens after that. You might last after. Dont be too shocked. Nothing at all might happen. Why can't you just define your life in terms of your life. What's here is pretty spiritually spectacular. If you want fodder for enriching spiritual belief, look around you. Look at your arm for god sakes. Just look at it for a second, scientists. Isn't it spectacular? I know it's just an arm, but when you think about it, it's pretty odd that there's anything here at all, much less something so fascinating as an arm. Isn't it spectacular that there's anything here at all? Doesn't existence and how beautiful it can be fascinate you so much that you don't really need to focus on death? When religion acts as a way to celebrate how fascinating the world we live in is, and to bring people together once in a while to share in that experience together, i totally support it, regardless of it's beliefs on life after death. When it becomes a vehicle for spiritual complacency, moral laziness (if i go to church once a week, my moral obligation as a human ends there), or is a function of habit (i'm a christian because my mom's a christian and her mom's a christian), then it kinda bugs me. Dont waste your life. You're truly special, and you can do better than that rot. I think the same thing about atheism. When defining yourself as an atheist is a copout to avoid thinking about how wonderful your life is, you're also wasting your time. It's the scientists who sit there explaining to me how things are universally determined, and consciousness is an illusion who bother me. I dont want to hear whether consciousness is an illusion, or a real phenomenon. Once you figure out how consciousness works, tell me about htat. No value judgements please. This's science here. You're not trying to prove atheism.

So I'm addicted to this show on the TLC network called _What not to wear_. I think it does several things for me that're pretty nice.

I fuss a *lot* about what i wear, and a lot've the time it's been for little benefit. I like to shop, and i like to learn about how to build a wardrobe that'll really flatter me and be versatile, but like, i keep having all these little things (colors, fits, etc) that i'm kinda neurotic about. It's the same way with my hair, makeup, etc, and i mostly find these neurosis when i'm trying new styles that i'm not very used to yet.

I love _What not to wear_ because it shows me that ABSOLUTELY EVERYBODY is a complete nut case about their clothes. People get *so* threatened by changing their style, when often they end up looking SO MUCH BETTER AFTER. I'm on the more comfortable side as far as how people react to new styles even I'd say. There's nothing so fashion-cathartic as watching people who dress themselfes like total crackpots keeping a death grip on their ugly old looks.

 

ROAR @ 01:24 am

So.. a bunch of my friends in chicago all know each other from college. They're all nerds, and i met them through another nerd, and we all get along. Two of their friends (and their associated spouses) that none of them had seen in quite a while rolled into town tonight for a weekend of fun, and were all "wanna go drinking!?!?", and me (the one that didnt go to college with them) was the ONLY ONE THAT WENT TO GO PARTY WITH THEM. WTF. If old college friends come to town, you HANG WITH THEM. Its not like there's like any other explanation here either. The reason nobody but me came out is because they're social hermits. Fucking hell. Not giving old friends a warm greeting violates like 5 of my personal rules.

What can i say. SUCH NERDS! Sometimes the social habits of other computer types are SERIOUSLY A DRAG
